The Cannes International Film Festival is an event that most of can’t attend, but this year we have a chance to see what’s happening behind the scenes.
David Lynch, director of Hollywood cult classics for TV and the big screen, is at Cannes this year and is
sending back QuickTime video clips of the event. In fact, David is the Chairman of the Selection Committee charged with picking the winners of this year’s festival.
The QuickTime videos are being posted to David’s Web site and are available as pay-per-view movies. For US$3.94, users can see approximately 15 videos from the event. Members of David’s Web site can also send him questions, which he will answer and post as a video on the Web site.
The video is shot, edited and posted the same day it happens, using Final Cut Pro, Media cleaner Pro and several Macintosh G4s, Eric Bassett, designer of DavidLynch.com told MacCentral.
Held in Cannes, France, the festival is host to some of the world’s top celebrities. Attendees this year include Jack Nicholson, Sandra Bullock, Matt Damon, Ralph Fiennes and Sharon Stone among others.
